One of my favorite movies since Slumdog Millionaire is undoubtedly The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel. I missed it in theaters but it is out on DVD and such a brilliant movie! It’s a unique story of love, life, change, and acceptance. The movie, rated very high among critics and moviegoers alike (rotten tomatoes) is a delight and a great escape from the blah of mainstream movies.
It is a tale of five British elders who embark on the journey of their lives in a country which is more than exotic– it’s the most populated country in the world and it has secrets and lessons to share with these Westerners. Lessons and experiences that will change their lives forever in the areas of love, wisdom, economics, tolerance and acceptance, spirituality, and above all- the belief that there can be second chances for all of us if we just venture outside our small worlds and find them.
